Interactive II – Hip Hop – Teabox

In this project we extract the Hip Hop elements such as hip-hop music, scratching, b-boying and the gesture as the instruments. These gestures are then programmed to produce specific sound and clip. We recorded ourself beat-beatboxing and some accapella then proceed to put it in our project.

Stepping up and down on the touch sensor will produce the main beat of the song.

Using the hat like how breakdancer will adjust their hat during their performances, this action will produce a sound.

Slicing gesture to make the scratching sound to imitate how hip hop break dancers move.

Pulling the zip up and down imitating again a hip hop dancer. The zip/slider will change the pitch of the sound.

At the end of the day, we try to make it interesting by introducing our own touch of voice to make this project more personal.

This is the first video we make and we will be making another soon.

Final Emulation – iPod Commercial

Greetings to the good people of Interactive 1,

Our reference for our Emulation was the classic iPod commercial where there are different people dancing while listening to their iPod through their earpiece. It is a very simple and effect commercial for Apple, showing only their silhouettes and the iPod.

For our emulation project, we aim to achieve the same effect and to make things more fun, we decided to add another element into it. The music will only play if we are dancing, and it will stop when we are not making any move. This makes it more interactive than just silhouette.

Here’s the video of our documentation. I hope you enjoy it and you guys can try playing it tomorrow!
